Hansel & Gretel will walk through the countryside in order to get to the church where their mother is buried. In the church they will kneel at the alter and pray (the camera will show their emotions through close-up shots on their faces) before heading outside to visit their mothers grave. They will place black roses on the gravestone, and Hansel will be shown putting an arm around Gretel, caring for her as the eldest sibling. In order to get home they must walk through the forest, and the camera will follow them on their journey back to their cottage.

Suspiria – Deconstruction

– No rhythm at first, makes the auidence ask questions because there was a build up in the music making the auidence apprehensive about what is going to happen. However there is nothing happening in the scene to imply something bad will happen. Therefore it is said that the music is out of sync to what is being shown on the screen.
– Drums add to this build up they have no rhythm.
– Voice/speech/ Narration setting scene.
– Soft music. High pitched layers.
– Goes back to no rhythm – panic sounding.
– Footsteps/wheels/foreign over-head/electric doors.

-Medium shot, understand all the information.
-Midshot, sets scene – normal airport. Shows characters emotion.
-Longshot – deserted entrance/exit. Shows where she is going.
-Midshot shows worried curious expression.

– Opening credits – accompanied with music
– Short amounts of cuts at least 12. They’re longer to set the start of the scene.
– Lots of cuts build drama.
– Thunder. Twinkly music.
– Rain/car noises (On and off depending on what the camera is showing.) If it’s the character showed there is no music, as the camera cuts the sound effects change. (This is interlinked with the Sound.)

Mise en Scene
– Shows flight board (arival/departure.) Realistic creates scene.
– Lots of different people going about their business.
– Air hostess- people every day/ordinary as well.
– Plastic waiting airport seats.
– Suitcases – understanding characters situation.

Big Fish – Deconstruction

Leave a comment

Classically composed. Creates a calm atmosphere. Also expresses a gradual build up.
Composed to fit the images on screen
Sound effects – water movement
Narration at first, then shown who is speaking
Other characters – here their reactions, gasps of breathe. Round of applause. Speech.
Narration matches images on the screen, his childhood growing up.
Understand that this is central to the character’s life as a boy and now as an older man.

Mise en Scene:
Water, under a lake.
Weeds and fish.
Fishing hooks
Sun rays through the water. (Lighting technique.)
Wall paper – child’s bedroom – their own drawing which is also in relation to the narration.
Scout campfire. Tents. Uniforms.
Possibly set in a wedding scene, posh dress, formal, flowers.

The editing uses transitions such as a ‘fade out’ to move from one scene to another. There are a number of cuts in the opening minutes to this film, ‘Big Fish’.
The actresses and actors name’s come up in a simple font and to the side of the main picture.
Shows the production log/animation of ‘Columbia’.

Close ups to the fish
Long shots to see the background of the situation
Medium shots to establish the scenes.
The camera shows a timeline of events in the opening scene, creates a build up.
Extreme close ups on the mans hand/wedding ring finger. This is obviously significant to the story and relates to the narrative being heard by the audience.
See silhouette of an extremely large fish.
